resulted from the disastrous war in iraq. >> so dick cheney obviously central to the original war here is not letting up. carl, after the op-ed in "the wall street journal" yesterday which we talked about on this show he went on fox news and said it would be irresponsible not to act in iraq. you just heard the president making the case for why the terrorists in iraq could threaten america. but dick cheney says the president does not recognize there's a war on terror. and here's what he said on fox. >> barack obama has stated repeatedly that the terrorist threat's gone we got bin laden. that's clearly not the case. that's not the truth. and in fact we have a situation tonight where terrorism is potentially in charge of a larger part of the middle east than ever before in our history. >> is the president not taking this threat seriously enough? >> of course he's taking it seriously. also what cheney said there, he really gave an accusation about the president and how he was endangering the united states. what cheney really said is what the psychiatrists i think call projection about accu
on a question to dick cheney that should have flattened him at the start. >> in your op-ed you write, "rarely has a u.s. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many." but time and time again history has proven that you got it wrong in iraq, sir. you said there was no doubt hussein had weapons of mass destruction, we would be greeted as liberators, the insurgency was in the last throes in 2005. you said extremists would have to, "rethink their strategy of jihad." now with almost a trillion dollars spent there, 4,500 americans lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many? >> no. i just fundamentally disagree, reagan -- meghan. you have to look at the track record. we inherited a situation where there was no doubt in anybody's mind about the ex tent of saddam's involvement in weapons of mass destruction. >> reagan was the name of the young girl in "the exorcist." i think dick cheney thought he was facing something as horrific there. we have seen them out there. here is a sampling of the recent op-eds and articles
there is a short delay so i will get right to it. let me first get your reaction to the presence of dick cheney and paul wolfowitz having greater military presence in iraq. >> these two individuals have no credibility with the world public, and i hope they have no credibility anymore with the u.s. public. we were all lied into this war and, in fact, it's a feature of democracies that they do tend to be -- they do tend to be lied into wars, and we can look at what's happened in syria. it's not just what's happened with dick cheney and wolfowitz, but actually what has happened in syria is obama's war, and that war has now crossed over into the border in iraq. the u.s. policy positions on this latest isis position are quite incomprehensible. it supports isis in syria. it supports saudi money supporting sunni militants in syria. it it supports iran's position on the isis in iraq and more broadly speaking, it supports a position against iran, for example in syria and i think perhaps the one thing that might come from this very difficult situation for the people in iraq is a greater collaboration bet
wolfowitz on television attacking somebody about iraq. dick cheney, of course. i should have mentioned him. but you listen, like ridi said, rubio, cruz, not a lot of clear cut statements beyond this is going wrong, obama is not handling it well. i think that's where they're going to say. and i think even hillary clinton has been very careful in what she said, as well. this is a complicated situation. when you're the president, you get blamed for everything and everything is your problem. when you're a candidate and you're a senator, dwrur not and it's often wise to stay out of being too precise. >> yeah. this generic criticism for obama is a safe place for the gop. we have heard from the mccain slk graham wing of the republican party and all of their criticism and how they think should be be more involved even as they fail to be particularly specific. but we haven't heard much from this rising more libertarian wing that we've heard a lot about and talked a lot about and is this a new direction for the gop. what are they saying? what are they thinking? where had are they falling on this con
, the george bush/dick cheney republicans that were not just in the white house at the time but here on capitol hill. so certainly that speaks to the republican party. having said that, you also are still seeing some of the real -- the partisan divide that is not unexpected with any president, but particularly at this point in the obama presidency. even again today, jake, john boehner who has been very forceful saying that president obama last week, he said he was taking a nap. today he said that the wheels have come off. really strong language saying that the united states and americans are exponentially less safe under this president because of the regional issues, because the region, not just iraq, but the region has exploded with terrorism. you certainly have the push and the pull among republicans with their constituents, but then the desire to be more robust and hit the president on what they fundamentally believe has been a foreign policy failure with pulling troops out of iraq. >> members of the house and is that the eagerly awaiting word from president obama about his decision, what he
in washington. david, speaking of chutzpah, we did hear from dick cheney who slammed the president, who stood up for the bush administration policies that he was a part of. take a listen to some of his choice moments. >> what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many? >> no, i just fundamentally disagree. you have got to go back and look at the track record. we inherited a situation where there was no doubt in anybody's mind about the extent of the saddam's involvement in the weapons of mass destruction. after 9/11, we were concerned about a following attack that would involve not just airline tickets and box cutters as the weapons but something far deadlier. it would have been irresponsible for us to act. we did do the right thing, and i think the troops performed magnifice magnificently. >> he is sounding increasingly defensive there. do you think current circumstances are a final condemnation of the decision to go in in the first place? >> no. what is -- the question is what is the strategic problem the united states has been trying to solve in the
and elsewhere. dick cheney, who embraced david petraeus and believed he has a great deal of wisdom here. but have been very eager to see the president make some other choices on air strikes. >> it makes him look like they are just trying to be against the president because, oh, he's for something. we have to be against it. i think petraeus really did buy some political time and space for the president. >> very interesting play there. as people are lining up on all sides of this. it seems we're reliving it iraq debate. chuck todd, thank you. i know you'll be standing by as the president comes out and makes his announcements. we, of course, will be carrying all of that live right here on msnbc. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." follow the show online on facebook and on twitter @mitchellreports. ronan farrow daily is up next. >>> i'm meteorologist bill karins. we're going to watch severe storms once again today. watch out around washington, d.c., baltimore, down to virginia beach. damaging wind and hail possible with those storms. and once again, the threat of hea
with even former vice-president dick cheney now clammislamming the president and his administration. he wrote, quote, rarely has a u.s. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. also in a video launching in a new group called alliance for a strong america, here's what he said. >> the policies of the last six years have left america diminished and weakened. our enemies no longer fear us. our allies no longer trust us. >> also today in an exclusive interview with savannah gutherie, john kerry said no final decisions on action in iraq have been made. >> there are some senior officials quoted in various news accounts today saying that air strikes are off the table, that the u.s. is no longer considering that. is that true? >> nothing is off the table. all options are still available to the president. the president has not made a decision on those options. we are very intensely vetting each of the possibilities. >> nbc's peter alexander joins us live from the white house. we have also with us michelle cabrera in northern iraq. peter, we've gotten word that we'll hear f
contemplating if we're going to do that. that's not on the table. >> dick cheney said rarely has a u.s. president been so wrong about so much affecting so many. >> this is a man that took us directly into iran. please. >> did the president miss the moment, make a huge mistake by not trying to turn the tide in syria then and what's happening in iraq now is the chickens coming home to roost. >> savannah,s plenty of time gog down the road here for people to have post mortems and to make decisions. we are the largest single donor of humanitarian assistance. we are deeply engaged. and working with our allies and friends in the region. we are assisting, training, doing work in terms of providing nonlethal aid and assistance. >> but doesn't the evidence suggest it's not working? instead of things getting better because of our assistance, groups are on the rise. >> they're on the rise because assad is a magnet for terrorists of all walks who are coming there to try to unseat him. >> didn't you advocate for arming the opposition when you were a senator? didn't you that i was the wrong thing t
over now increasing its assistance to iraq. when asked about former vice president dick cheney's harsh criticism of president obama's actions, kerry said quote, "this is a man who took us directly to iraq. please". kerry also said that the u-s did not have the capability to be effective early on in this new response options are still on the table. clouts a still of the web more coming up, and a this is our ocean spray cran-lemonade.o tire swings! only be! whoa! ocean spy cran-lemonade. a bold tst on an old favorite. more severe weather hitting pish a tornado touched down yesterday in south dakota trapping some people in their homes. vehicles in wessington springs were lifted and tossed atop one another, as the tornado left buildings. residents report hearing the twister from their basements. the governor has mobilized one hundred soldiers from the south dakota national guard to help happening now. a live look from the faugh most of barest back to the scene sunday schedule now and clear skies. this would looks like on the satellite's radar you see that patchy nature of the marine layer.
